SHLC Attorney Brett Sutton was quoted in today’s Nevada Independent on whether pending legislation in the Nevada Legislature that would raise the state minimum wage by statute, as opposed to constitutional amendment, is permissible under the Nevada Constitution. (https://thenevadaindependent.com/article/indy-explains-can-nevada-legislature-raise-minimum-wage) The minimum wage legislation as well as other pending legislation of interest to Nevada employers will be addressed by Brett at the SHRM Nevada State Legislative Day on March 8, 2017. For more information on that event, which will also include a reception at the Governor’s Mansion with guest Lt. Governor Mark Hutchison, visit http://nnhra.org/event/2017-nevada-state-advocacy-day-save-date/.
